Modern Renaissance Man
Ok... Totally kidding about the whole "Renaissance Man" thing, but I am pretty much interested in everything...
I feel like it is extremely important to keep your curiosity throughout adulthood, even as our everyday lives work to inhibit this. Therefore, I make a consistent effort to learn new things, acquire new skills, and to pursue whatever hobies and subjects interest me.
Husband, father, student, communicator, strategist, computer programmer, stained glass artist, photographer, auto enthusiast, violinist, public speaker, current events hound, avid reader, writer, history buff, inventor, armchair philosopher, technologist, sky-diver (once is enough on that one), formula-1 nut, designer... (all in no particular order, of course...)
I'm a proud graduate of the University of Missouri, Columbia school of Engineering.
Bachelor's Degree, Electrical Engineering (BS EE)
In my Electrical Engineering studies I learned about 3-phase power, electromagnetics, and analog vs. digital signals. But most importantly, I learned troubleshooting and problem solving skills invaluable not only in my career, but also in my everyday life. I also learned that computer chips have a very unique smell when you hook them up backwards and they fry.
Bachelor's Degree, Computer Engineering (BS CE)
In my Computer Engineering courses, I wrote a small operating system, learned different programming languages, and explored computational logic. I also learned that being a Computer Engineer also immediately labels you as "tech support" for your friends and family.
